It's hard to add something new to the hundreds of glowing (and well deserved) kudos from previous guests, but I'll make a stab at it. We consider ourselves to be experienced world travelers, so when we say this is one of the best boutique hotels...More

This is a delightful hotel. We felt like we in our private hotel... a home away from home. From the street you would have no idea of the oasis behind the doors. Understated, informed elegance. Neil and Sarah are exceptional hosts. Highly recommend the Diplomat.

About
Description
Recently featured in Condé Nast Traveller, AFAR, Jetsetter, and Forbes. This little gem is an upscale jumping off point for discovering the colourful streets of Merida, adventuring to Mayan Ruins or More seeking out cenotes and haciendas. The Diplomat’s hip decor and relaxed atmosphere are perfect for the modern explorer. A mix of Colonial architecture and well thought design with local accents; enjoy flawless wifi, delicious margaritas, and unwinding poolside with some complimentary mezcal. And be sure not to miss the amazing breakfast. Run by travellers for travellers, your hosts will provide insight into the local culture, restaurants, cantinas, and connect you with places that are off the beaten path. The Diplomat is a good vibes only establishment for adults to recharge and be inspired. Less
